Adrian Beltre hits for 3rd cycle in win

The Rangers 3B became just the fourth player in MLB history to hit for the cycle three times in his career -- and he's now the owner of two of the last eight cycles. The Rangers beat the Astros 12-9 as six Rangers had a multihit game. Box score

Astros' woes continue in Arlington

Lance McCullers' start lasted just one out after he gave up 6 runs. And, after 1 2/3 scoreless innings from Josh Fields, the floodgates are open again for the Rangers. Texas tagged Mike Fiers, who was scheduled to start Tuesday, for 5 runs in the 3rd and it leads 11-3. Adrian Beltre is just a home run away from the cycle. Follow live

Astros jump on Rangers early

Jose Altuve reached on an infield single to lead off the game and later scored on Carlos Correa's homer to give Houston the lead. Correa's blast was his 13th, the most among AL shortstops. Follow live

Laughingstock no more

Remember when the Astros were a perennial 100-loss team? Those days are over. Houston, the AL West's 1st-place team, won its 60th game of the season Sunday -- and 46 games remain. The Astros averaged 54 wins from 2011-2013.

Houston Astros @astrosbaseball

Collin McHugh and Dallas Keuchel are 13-5 and tied for the AL lead in wins. It's the first time the #Astros have had multiple 13-game winners since Roy Oswalt and Andy Pettitte in 2006. #Represent #HTownPride

Houston Astros @astrosbaseball
